At the Institute of Pastoral Studies (IPS), we know the importance of the decision you are about to make, and we strive to provide a seamless, streamlined admission process. We invite you to apply to IPS and join a community of part-time and full-time students who have chosen to pursue a graduate degree or post-graduate certificate at Loyola University Chicago.
Our rolling admission policy allows you to enroll at three points throughout the year (fall, spring, and summer), whichever is most convenient and realistic for you. To learn more about the admission process, choose the program you wish to apply for below.
